My blog has a new look

48 sec read

I started blogging in about 2008. At that time I just started to develop my first startup product, a cloud reference manager for researchers called Peaya (then PaperBox) which unfortunately (or fortunately?) failed miserably later. At that time I was enthusiastic about a technology called “Adobe AIR” (which died later and that’s why I hate Adobe :)). Some sample applications built on Adobe AIR were just beautiful and I wanted my product to be that beautiful. So the first few blog posts were about how I learn the technology by dissecting a sample application called “Employee Directory”.

Later on I find it’s a good place to keep notes of my own research (fMRI / fNIRS) as well as other documents which help myself to remember what I did before. To my pleasant surprise, many people, especially in the fNIRS field, find them useful too.

Since it’s been more than 10 years, the style of the blog is outdated and is not mobile friendly. So today I updated the website (actually moved the server from Amazon cloud to linode, and also updated the operating system , now CentOS 8, and PHP 7.3, WordPress etc). I also use a new theme called Mediumish as I like Medium’s simplicity.

Below is a screenshot of the blog before updating, just for memory.

And now the new look:

Below is the old site again but with the full first page.

请跟我来

今天无意中看了崔永元和水均益的女儿水亦诗唱的《请跟我来》,很感动。已经记不清什么时候第一次听这首歌,但是这简单的旋律、崔永元浑厚和水亦诗纯洁的嗓音,一下子把我带到青春的过去。我感觉心好像融化一般,眼泪也不由地流了下来。 点击下面Youtube的链接可以欣赏他们的演唱。后面是歌词。朴素的歌词,却总有打动人心的力量。 请跟我来 作曲:梁弘志 编曲:钟兴民 填词:梁弘志 主唱:苏芮–虞戡平 歌词: 我踩着不变的步伐 是为了配合你到来 在慌张迟疑的时候 请跟我来 我带着梦幻的期待 是无法按捺的情怀 在你不注意的时候 请跟我来 别说什么 那是你无法预知的世界 别说你不用说 你的眼睛已经告诉了我 当春雨飘呀飘的飘在 你滴也滴不完的发梢 戴着你的水晶珠链 请跟我来

Google Chrome takes too much CPU

I have been noticing for a while that Chrome takes too much of my CPU. It constantly consumes about ~30% or even more CPU...
